this hotel/resort has beautiful rooms, a fantastic staff, and a very nice beach front area. The rooms have majestic views over the ocean and I can't stress enough how worth the money it is. While it is expensive you cannot find a better place to relax!

We spent 4 wonderful nights in a 2 bedroom bungalow (#119) with a breathtaking view of the ocean and surrounding mountains. My wife and I enjoyed the privacy of the upstairs master with balcony and our two kids enjoyed having their own space downstairs. The property is perfect for families, especially those seeking up-close experiences with wildlife. We saw white...

Comfortable, quiet, and in a spectacular location. Views of the Pacific from the hillside and a great private beach with sloths in the trees. The best part was the service.

This was my second visit to Tulemar and stay at Casa de Frutas and I didn't think this time could top my first experience there, but I was wrong.
